Pretzel Wreaths

February 12th, 2013 posted by Tami Rose

Add a touch of whimsy to your tree with these adorable and tasty pretzel wreaths. These also make the perfect last minute ‘thank you’ gift for friends, family or just about anyone.

What You Need

Mini Pretzels – 7 pretzels per wreath White Chocolate Candy Melts Mini Candies such as Mini M&Ms, Red Hots, Gum Drops, etc. Fruit Leather Rolls Sugar (optional) Wax Paper Baking Sheet

What You Do

Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Using 7 pretzels for each wreath, form small circles on the wax paper. Melt white chocolate in the microwave at 30-second intervals, until melted. Use the chocolate to “glue” the pretzels together, sides touching. While the chocolate is still wet, garnish with candy decorations. Either let the chocolate air dry or slide the baking sheet into the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes until the chocolate is hard. We do not recommend refrigerating any of the wreaths that are decorated with candies that have a sugar coating. The sugary coating melts once the candies come back to room temperature. Roll out the fruit leather, pressing both the front & back of the leather into sugar for a festive look. Cut into thin strips to use for ribbons on the wreath and for the hanger on top of the wreath.

Tip:

If you are planning on hanging your wreaths on a tree, use clear fishing line to create a hanger for your wreaths. Do not hang the wreath from the fruit leather, as it will break.
